The first part of this post contains a question that doesn't seem to have 
been answered: given that  there are three active versions of PHP, 5.6, 
7.0, and 7.1, what is the difference between them?  The documentation 
available online doesn't seem to say that one is "better" or "more secure" 
or "faster" than any other.

Here, due to problems getting 7.1 under PHP-FPM to run a year ago, I backed 
off to 5.6 and I'm wondering whether the pain of trying to "upgrade" again 
is worth it.

So, can some knowledgeable person give a succinct definition of why one 
would run a specific version?  It boggles the mind that there would be that 
many versions maintained if there isn't some significant difference between 
them.
